1 CHAPTER 16 This chapter describes how to configure the NetFlow feature on Cisco NX-OS devices. This chapter includes the following sections: Information About NetFlow, page 16-1 Licensing Requirements for NetFlow, page 16-4 Prerequisites for NetFlow, page 16-4 Guidelines and Limitations, page 16-4, page 16-5 Verifying NetFlow Configuration, page Monitoring NetFlow, page NetFlow Example Configuration, page Default Settings, page Additional References, page Feature History for NetFlow, page Information About NetFlow NetFlow identifies packet flows for both ingress and egress IP packets and provides statistics based on these packet flows. NetFlow does not require any change to either the packets themselves or to any networking device. This section includes the following topics: NetFlow Overview, page 16-1 High Availability, page 16-3 Virtualization Support, page 16-4 NetFlow Overview NetFlow uses flows to provide statistics for accounting, network monitoring, and network planning. A flow is a unidirectional stream of packets that arrives on a source interface (or VLAN) and has the same values for the keys. A key is an identified value for a field within the packet. You create a flow using a flow record to define the unique keys for your flow. 16-1

2 Information About NetFlow Chapter 16 Flow Records Exporters Cisco NX-OS supports the Flexible NetFlow feature that enables enhanced network anomalies and security detection. Flexible NetFlow allows you to define an optimal flow record for a particular application by selecting the keys from a large collection of predefined fields. For more information on the flow records, see the Flow Records section on page All key values must match for the packet to count in a given flow. A flow might gather other fields of interest, depending on the export record version that you configure. Flows are stored in the NetFlow cache. You can export the data that NetFlow gathers for your flow by using an exporter and export this data to a remote NetFlow collector. Cisco NX-OS exports a flow as part of a NetFlow export User Datagram Protocol (UDP) datagram under the following circumstances: The flow has been inactive or active for too long. The flow cache is getting full. One of the counters (packets or bytes) has exceeded its maximum value. You have forced the flow to export. For more information on exporters, see the Exporters section on page You define the size of the data that you want to collect for a flow using a monitor. The monitor combines the flow record and exporter with the NetFlow cache information. For more information on monitors, see the Monitors section on page Cisco NX-OS can gather NetFlow statistics in either full or sampled mode. Cisco NX-OS analyzes all packets on the interface or subinterface for full NetFlow mode. For sampled mode, you configure the sampling algorithm and rate that Cisco NX-OS analyzes packets. For more information on samplers, see the Samplers section on page A flow record defines the keys that NetFlow uses to identify packets in the flow as well as other fields of interest that NetFlow gathers for the flow. You can define a flow record with any combination of keys and fields of interest. Cisco NX-OS supports a rich set of keys. A flow record also defines the types of counters gathered per flow. You can configure 32-bit or 64-bit packet or byte counters. Cisco NX-OS enables the following match fields as the defaults when you create a flow record: match interface input match interface output match flow direction For more information, see the Creating a Flow Record section on page An exporter contains network layer and transport layer details for the NetFlow export packet. You can configure the following information in an exporter: Export destination IP address Source interface UDP port number (where the collector is listening for NetFlow packets) Export format 16-2

3 Chapter 16 Information About NetFlow Note NetFlow export packets use the IP address that is assigned to the source interface. If the source interface does not have an IP address assigned to it, the exporter will be inactive. Cisco NX-OS exports data to the collector whenever a timeout occurs or when the flow is terminated (TCP Fin or Rst received, for example). You can configure the following timers to force a flow export: Active timeout Cisco NX-OS does not remove the cache entries from the cache. Inactive timeout Cisco NX-OS removes the cache entries from the cache. Export Formats Cisco NX-OS supports the Version 5 and Version 9 export formats. We recommend that you use the Version 9 export format for the following reasons: Variable field specification format Support for IPv6, Layer 2, and MPLS fields More efficient network utilization If you configure the Version 5 export format, you have these limitations: Fixed field specifications A 16-bit representation of the 32-bit interface index used in Cisco NX-OS No support for IPv6, Layer 2, or MPLS fields For information about the Version 9 export format, see RFC Note Cisco NX-OS supports UDP as the transport protocol for exports to up to two collectors. Monitors A monitor references the flow record and flow exporter. You apply a monitor to an interface. Samplers If you are using sampled mode, you use the sampler to specify the rate at which packets are sampled. On high bandwidth interfaces, applying NetFlow processing to every single packet can result in high CPU utilization. Sampler configuration is for high-speed interfaces. You can configure samples for M out of N. For example, 100 out of every 10,000 packets are sampled. High Availability Cisco NX-OS supports stateful restarts for NetFlow. After a reboot or supervisor switchover, Cisco NX-OS applies the running configuration. 16-3

4 Licensing Requirements for NetFlow Chapter 16 Virtualization Support A virtual device context (VDC) is a logical representation of a set of system resources. Within each VDC, you can configure NetFlow. By default, Cisco NX-OS places you in the default VDC and any flows that you define in this mode are only available for interfaces in the default VDC. For information about configuring VDCs, see the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series NX-OS Virtual Device Context Configuration Guide, Release 4.2. Licensing Requirements for NetFlow Product NX-OS License Requirement NetFlow requires no license. Any feature not included in a license package is bundled with the Cisco NX-OS system images and is provided at no extra charge to you. For a complete explanation of the NX-OS licensing scheme. For more information, see the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series NX-OS Licensing Guide, Release 4.2. Prerequisites for NetFlow NetFlow has the following prerequisite: You must understand the resources required on your device because NetFlow consumes additional memory and CPU resources. If you configure VDCs, install the Advanced Services license and enter the desired VDC. For more information, see the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series NX-OS Virtual Device Context Configuration Guide, Release 4.2. Guidelines and Limitations NetFlow has the following configuration guidelines and limitations: You must configure a source interface. If you do not configure a source interface, the exporter will remain in a disabled state. You must configure a valid record name for every flow monitor. A rollback will fail if you try to modify a record that is programmed in the hardware during a rollback. Only Layer 2 NetFlow is applied on Layer 2 interfaces, and only Layer 3 NetFlow is applied on Layer 3 interfaces. If you add a member to a port channel that is already configured for Layer 2 NetFlow, its NetFlow configuration is removed and the Layer 2 configuration of the port channel is added to it. If you change a Layer 2 interface to a Layer 3 interface, the software removes the Layer 2 NetFlow configuration from the interface. Use v9 export to see the full 32-bit SNMP ifindex values at the NetFlow connector. 16-4

5 Chapter 16 To configure NetFlow, follow these steps: Step 1 Enable the NetFlow feature (see the Enabling the NetFlow Feature section on page 16-5). Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Define a flow record by specifying keys and fields to the flow (see the Creating a Flow Record section on page 16-6). Define an optional flow exporter by specifying the export format, protocol, destination, and other parameters (see the Creating a Flow Exporter section on page 16-9). Define a flow monitor based on the flow record and flow exporter (see the Creating a Flow Monitor section on page 16-11). Apply the flow monitor to a source interface, subinterface, VLAN interface (see the Applying a Flow to an Interface section on page 16-13), or a VLAN (see the Configuring Bridged NetFlow on a VLAN section on page 16-14). This section includes the following topics: Enabling the NetFlow Feature, page 16-5 Creating a Flow Record, page 16-6 Creating a Flow Exporter, page 16-9 Creating a Flow Monitor, page Creating a Sampler, page Applying a Flow to an Interface, page Configuring Bridged NetFlow on a VLAN, page Configuring Layer 2 NetFlow, page Timeouts, page Note Be aware that the Cisco NX-OS commands for this feature may differ from those used in Cisco IOS. Enabling the NetFlow Feature You must globally enable NetFlow before you can configure any flows. Use the following command in global configuration mode to enable NetFlow: feature netflow Enables the NetFlow feature. switch(config)# feature netflow 16-5
